Seattle Times - [Full Article]

Wide receiver Deon Butler had the catch of the day during Sunday's scrimmage at Husky Stadium.

Butler has been outstanding over the offseason, according to Pete Carroll, and his catch on Sunday showed that he just may be ready to be the deep threat Seahawks fans were hoping for last year during his rookie season.

"He's probably been the most improved receiver, the most improved guy maybe even at his position other than maybe Red Bryant," Carroll said of Butler. "He's just made a lot of progress. He made another big play today. He's got terrific speed, but to make tough catches like that with guys going up, that's the stuff you like to see."

Fantasy Impact: 

Butler isn't on the radar on a lot of lists, so keep an eye on his progress. He may be worth a late-round pick or a waiver wire pickup at some point if his preseason success transfers to the regular season.
